It’s that time of year where a lot of big universities are busy sending out more skinny than fat letters to their applicants, but just because circumstances in life didn’t allow you to attend MIT doesn’t mean that you can’t still get some great EE education on the cheap. MIT has a number of freely available EE courses (and coursework covering a lot of other areas as well), which can be freely downloaded from the MIT OpenCourseWare website. If you’re looking for an excellent introductory level course, you’ll probably want to look at 6.002 Circuits and Electronics. Make sure to download the course material as well (available from the side menu) to get the most from the lessons. Just quietly cringe to yourself and pretend the lecture notes aren’t written in Comic Sans.
